Things To Do in Yorkshire + Free Yorkshire Water Adventure Pack

Duck feeding in Yorkshire

When I was a little girl with curly blonde locks (I know, it’s hard to believe!) my ultimate favourite thing was feeding the ducks. There’s a home video of me somewhere dragging a doll around in the shadow of my big brother shouting, “go see ducks Danny!”. Even at just 29 I remember the days as a kid having picnics in Fairburn Ings with my Grandparents and playing out in the village until my tea was ready. Don’t get me wrong, I love video games, binge watching TV shows and making new friends on the internet, but I feel like kids these days are really missing out on the simple outdoors.

Things To Do in Yorkshire

Yorkshire Water got in touch with me the other day and asked what I thought of their free adventure packs to encourage kids and teenagers to spend more time outdoors. They’re free to download with a range of outdoor games like cloud hunting and duck feeding… things I still love to do now! It’s really got me thinking about how beautiful Yorkshire is and how much I want to get out and see more of the gorgeous countryside. So here are my top 5 things to do in Yorkshire, don’t forget to head over to Yorkshire Water to download your adventure pack to take along too, even if you’re just a big kid like me!

The Brown Cow Pub, Bingley

The Brown Cow, Bingley

// Head out for a long walk, pack your camera and finish up at the pub for a hearty lunch. Go on, treat yourself to a pudding for all those miles! I recommend exploring around Bingley, which is easily accessible by train, and having a lovely lunch at the Brown Cow.

// You’ve got to hang out with the birds at Lotherton Hall, they have some of the kookiest looking dudes, including flamingos!!

// Enjoy fish & chips on the beach in Scarborough – we even went in January and had an amazing time eating ice cream and wandering along the beach!

// Head out for a day in Ripon, exploring the cathedral and hanging out on the banks of the river having a picnic. This was one of our absolute favourite places as kids, eating turkey sandwiches and paddling in the water – real bonding time for me and my big bro!

// Set up a tent in your own back garden!! Lay on the grass picking animals out of the clouds and then huddle up with blankets and listen to the world outside your tent. The simple things never get old.

Celebrating Yorkshire with #MyYorkshirePhoto

Kirkstall Abbey

I mentioned earlier this week that Inntravel had sent me a Polaroid camera to help capture the awesomeness of Yorkshire for their #MyYorkshirePhoto campaign; Boyfriend and I took a lovely walk down to our local beauty spot, Kirkstall Abbey. I’ve already shown you some photographs we took featuring my face, so here’s some lovely ones that are unspoiled ;)

If you’re a bit more hardcore than me you can pop on your walking boots and take one of Inntravel’s walking holidays. When I was a kid I would spend a lot of weekends in the Yorkshire dales with my family: eating great pub food, splashing through fords in the 4×4, exploring the moors and coming up with daft songs & rhymes with my big brother. I feel kind of sad that I don’t do anything like that anymore. I’m definitely a city girl, but I do have a desperate love for Yorkshire and I’d like to get out and see it’s greatness again. Like old times.
